Helping the food industry comply with ATEX changes

Elfab has been helping the food industry to comply with changes to the ATEX Directive. All existing hazardous area workplaces in use prior to 30 June 2003 had to meet ATEX's appropriate minimum requirements by 1 July 2006. While industries handling common explosible dusts were already aware of the impending deadline, those working with other materials - including malt and grain - also became subject to the changes. In recent months Elfab has been advising the food industry on changes that needed to be put in place. One example from the malting sector has placed its first ever order for bursting panels; others include customers in sugar storage, grain silos and the brewing industry. Elfab offered advice and assistance while working to tight timescales to meet these companies' requirements.
